Daniel Radcliffe's PSA for LGBTQ Youths
Daniel Radcliffe wants the LGBTQ youths to know that they are not alone in this world. In a new PSA, the "Harry Potter" star introduces Trevor Project which main goal is to prevent suicide and help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth in crisis.
"If you're feeling helpless or hopeless, there's always a safe place to turn," the British actor says in the video, introducing a free and confidential hotline which youths can call anytime. "You can talk to someone 24 hours a day," he adds, before closing it with "Be proud of who you are."
Speaking to MTV about supporting the cause, Radcliffe said, "It's something I've always been quite passionate about. Because I grew up around gay men, it was always a natural thing to me. It was never something I ever gave a second thought to. ...And now I am in a position where I can help an amazing thing like the Trevor Project."
"There are about 160 people in total who work around the clock, and that number is obviously growing over time. It is an incredible thing," he said further. "I was talking to one of the [volunteers], who said, 'I hate the fact that this needs to exist.' But it's so important that it does."
